Excuse me while I cry at how smart this kid is. #Repost @ihartericka with @download_repost ・・・ About two years ago, I facilitated a gender workshop for an organization and every white cis woman in the room (about 5) argued with me tooth and nail that the gender binary was not a result and tool of colonialism AND that Spanish (although the workshop was in English- you might be surprised the lengths people will go to side with the colonizer) was an impossible language to make gender neutral. These two conversations dominated the workshop and I wasn’t able to finish what I planned. One of them came up to me at the end and told me to do more research on how gender identity is biological, not self defined. I just looked at her with tears in my eyes. I felt so defeated and harmed in the end, but I had to remind myself that 1. Adults are in the way of this work 2. People love to discount what black femmes say regardless of their expertise. . . This video makes me want to cry not just cause this child is brilliant, but also how much convincing they had to do to stand for people in response to their teacher’s resistance.

If you haven’t given @sexpositive_families a follow yet, I definitely encourage it. I’m learning new things about subjects I thought I knew well. Does anyone remember learning about consent in their childhood? I don’t. But I do remember feeling weirdly uncomfortable when being forced to kiss or hug strangers or even family as a kid bc it was “polite”. Teaching kids about consent benefits them as well the people around them. Next time a kid doesn’t want to give you a hug. Don’t ask twice, let it be and model to them that you heard their needs loud and clear and respect them. ❤️✨ . . . #cdolim #cdolimnanny #nonbinary #nanny #thenonbinarynanny #gendercreative #gendercreativenanny #longbeach #longbeachnanny #childdevelopment #ece #sexpositive #sexpositivefamilies

Go to @sexpositive_families to get the link for more info. ❤️ #Repost @sexpositive_families with @download_repost ・・・ Many adults of today grew up without their autonomy and consent affirmed and respected; without full knowledge about their bodies and all bodies; with fear and shame projected onto them about sexuality and pleasure. The harmful implications to self and in how equipped they are to navigate relationships and sexual experiences with others have been many as a result. . We have the opportunity to change this for children of today so they experience healthier, safer and more satisfying outcomes. . Knowledge is power, and we want young people to be really powerful. . If you’re not sure what to say or when to say it to support the sexual health of a child or teen in your world, check out our bio link. We have many resources and avenues to support you on your journey. . What adult followers of our work often find is that through learning about how to support the sexual health of a child in their life, they also find healing for the child inside of them. 💜
